Purple Jeans, Stripe Tanks and Grey Cardis With Mini MAB Tote Bag

I love repeating outfits I've enjoyed before and just tweaking the formula slightly to make a new outfit. It's nice being able to group them together when I post too so you can get some different ideas of ways to wear things. There wasn't a lot of changing things up with these outfits though! I wore almost completely identical outfits. Striped tanks, grey cardigans, blue accessories and purple jeans with a little Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB Tote.

It seems a little strange for me to be posting these layered up outfits in October and the middle of spring, but on the early spring days I shared these the mornings were chilly enough for me to want layers. Even if the layers didn't stay on long!

Necklace: silk beaded baby-friendly necklace

JeansJeanswest blackberry super skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum

Why I wore it:

Wore this to head to our ABA mothers group catch up. Usually I just delete pics like this, but I thought it was a perfect representation of the day (and also because I spent much longer than usual battling the wind to try get an okay photo that morning before I gave up!). Coopers windblown face is just too funny not to share too 😂

While it was forecast to be a warm day, it was a cold morning, especially with the wind, and our catch up is in a church hall. Big and spacious, but also a little chilly! This light cardigan was the perfect layer over the striped tank and easy to take off when we ventured back outside in the afternoon. Now that scarves are not needed for warmth and are more of an optional accessory, it's good to wear my necklace collection again! This is a baby friendly one, perfect for sitting around chatting with mums and babies as I don't have to worry if a curious baby grabs it!

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum

Why I wore it:

Almost the exact same outfit as the first one, just slightly warmer layers. With it being windy and a little chilly in the morning, I thought the cosy cardigan and big blanket scarf would be helpful when sitting outside with the boys at playgroup. I ended up taking the scarf off quite early in the day though. A wool scarf and a wool cardigan are just too much for a Brisbane spring!

It was actually our last session of playgroup. I was a little sad as we have been going there for over 3 and a half years. (First time we went here!) It's been shut down as the organisation that own the building feel it and the other services are no longer needed. They have found another space and organisation to run it which some of the mums will try going to, but for various reasons we can't attend in the new location.

It was sweet of the boys to give me lots of cuddles through the morning, and so sad saying goodbye. More for me than them, it's been such a constant, welcoming space for years for us, from one baby to 2 and I have so many happy memories. The big party we had was a nice way to say goodbye.

Purple Jeans Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Colourful jeans are simple to wear when you pair them with neutral cardigans, and a striped tank is a great basic to add to any outfit! Light layers like scarves and cardigans are perfect for spring as you can wear them as needed. If you do want to add another colour into your outfit, I love blue and purple together.

Spring Dresses, Cute Scarves and Rebecca Minkoff Bags

The best thing about spring weather is getting to wear more dresses! I do like to wear most of my wardrobe year round, but it's so good in spring when you can shed the layers and just wear dresses and comfortable sneakers without tights.

The colourful scarves were really just for decoration and didn't need to keep me warm, on two beautiful spring days where we made the most of the sunshine at the park.

What I wore:

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag | away from the blue

ScarfFashion Scarf Girl large poppy scarf in white (c/o)
DressAsos grey skater dress
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

This grey skater dress is a little worn piece in my wardrobe. In the past I've wondered why as it's always a nice piece to wear. Last worn over a year ago! Wearing it again reminded me I really should enjoy it more often, and not pass it over for more 'interesting' printed dresses.

They grey dress was a beautiful backdrop for the bold red poppy print scarf and mini Avery tote bag. Also was a nice length for walking around and playing at the playground with the boys. Being knee length I found it an okay length, even if I was a little more considerate with exactly how I crouched down to toddler level!

First time I've walked so far in these shoes - and I was really pleased they were so comfortable all day. There was a little rubbing right before we got home but I think that was because my sock slipped down. We decided to make the most of the beautiful weather and walk to a park a couple of Ks away, a little further than our usual park. The boys loved it though, it was such a nice day.

Rebecca Minkoff Vs Balenciaga:



Showing you more of my Rebecca Minkoff and Balenciaga collection side by side and talking about the similarities and differences of each. Since they are the two brands most common in my handbag collection, I also share my favourite and why!




What I wore:

ScarfFashion Scarf Girl plain crinkle scarf in orange (c/o)
Dress: Rivers Aztec print dress
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Another lovely spring day, another morning at the park! Took the boys on a quick errand in the morning and then we walked to our local park to enjoy the sunshine. I love the spring days where it's warm enough to get out and get some fresh air but it's not so hot you're suffering!

I really liked the orange scarf with the Aztec print on this dress. The print wasn't as orange as I thought it would be when I was planning this outfit, but I felt the crinkles on the scarf still worked nicely with the lines in the print. I did consider adding a denim jacket to this as it was a little breezy in the morning, but I actually couldn't find it.  I had slipped off the hanger in my wardrobe, I found it later that evening. While there were a few moments during the day I felt a bit of a chill, with all of the walking and running around I was pretty warm and glad I hadn't found the jacket in time.

Picked my little silver Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC to wear with this outfit, as it felt quite busy with the bright scarf and printed dress. I loved how well it worked, it's one of those neutral bags that goes with everything. Most importantly, it slips inside the baby bag which I still carry even on trips to the park as who knows when the boys will find a puddle and I'll need that extra change of clothes!

Dresses For Spring Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

Spring weather is perfect for a simple outfit formula of sneakers and dresses. A bold bright scarf can be used to add an extra touch of colour to your outfit, and keep you warmer if the temperatures fluctuate through the day.

Skinny Jeans, Bright Tanks and Kimonos With Colourful Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Spring weather means kimono weather for me! I'm wearing really simple outfits below with bright tanks and skinny jeans, you know I love my simple outfit formulas. I also love how the addition of a kimono makes a simple outfit a little more interesting.

What I wore:

NecklaceZuriCollections blue polymer clay necklace
TankJeanswest Maya gather back tank in chartreuse
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff micro Regan satchel in Harvest Gold

Why I wore it:

This was a last minute thrown together outfit. We'd had a quiet day, with the overcast and rainy weather, and then got an invitation in the afternoon to go out for dinner that evening. I picked my brightest tank to offset the gloomy evening. It's not the first time I've worn this mustard tank and bag together, it's a combination I love even though the shades of yellow don't match exactly.

With the mustard tank and bag, I kept everything else in the outfit neutral. I really loved this kimono with the grey skinny jeans. Everytime I wear them together (like here) I always like the resulting outfit. No exception this time around, again I loved this. I appreciated that this kimono is really just a giant blanket so it kept me cosy when we stepped out of the restaurant at the end of the night!

TankJeanswest Maya gather back tank in mid turquoise

ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum

Why I wore it:

There must be something about these jeans! Once again I unsuspectingly wore them to playgroup, where ti was another messy play day. I did really well, watching the boys from a distance and keeping fairly clean until right at the very end. The boys were playing with pigs in 'mud' (cornflour, cocoa and water) and apparently the pigs liked to cannon ball in from great heights. I wasn't standing far enough back so got a bit splashed.

I didn't mind myself and the boys were soaked through as due to the cocoa it all smelled quite lovely, haha! We got some strange looks in Woolies grabbing groceries on the way home later though!

Messy morning aside, I really liked this outfit! These purple pants are frequently worn with blue, and I loved the bright tank with the darker purple. With the bright blue tank, navy floral kimono and purple mini MAB tote bag, I really liked all of the colours in this outfit. It felt so spring-like!

Bright Tanks Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Add some colour to your outfit with a plain but colourful tank! It's so easy to wear with jeans to add an extra touch of colour to your look. If you're unsure how to wear a bright tank, try pairing it with neutral layers like in the first outfit. You can go bold and pair it with other complementary colours like the second outfit if you prefer.

Grey Tees, Green Pants and Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bags

When I picked up a couple of pairs of green pants in the opshop I knew they'd push me out of my comfort zone a little - green is a colour I find tricky to wear. I did my usual round of thinking when considering new purchases and thought of at least two ways to wear them before I bought them. With grey tees was of the original ways I thought of wearing them. It's like a default when I'm not sure how to wear something - wear it with a grey tee! A neutral grey tee is a wardrobe-must have for me.

What I wore:

Teee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC

Why I wore it:

We decided to spend the morning at Brisbane's Green Heart Fair. It's a fair around being green and environmentally friendly, with shows and displays and even free trees. So it's obvious to see why I picked my green skinny jeans to wear and my family tree print scarf, ha! I've worn the scarf and jeans together before, but the combo seemed even more fun given our destination. The silver mini MAC bag seemed like a nice neutral with the colourful jeans.

We had a bit of a late start to the day but we still made it in time to see a show from PJ Masks - something the boys were very excited about. (Don't worry if you haven't heard of them either, I hadn't. Apparently they've seen it or heard about it at daycare or their grandparents?). Was a fun show for the kids and they had a great time dancing around and being super heros.

The day warmed up a lot too, I added the scarf in the morning as it was a bit breezy but I considered taking it off around lunch time. Such a beautiful spring day.

While I loved my outfit and the boys loved the show (and getting to 'drive' a bus) the highlight for me was bumping into Rachelle and her lovely family! One of the friends I've made on YouTube this year.

Jeans: thrifted French Connection olive skinny cargo pants
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

This was also a nice warm spring day, but I needed the denim jacket on top for out outing to the ABA. It's held in a church hall, so it's quite a cold space. I took it off later in the day though!

It was nice being able to get my denim jacket out again, one of those pieces that really seem to welcome spring for me. The parrot print scarf was a nice way to add more colour to my outfit too. The green in the print makes it a frequent go-to for me when I'm wearing anything green! I thought it paired really nicely with the olive cargo pants.

I was going to wear my silver ballet flats with this outfit, but I felt the bow detail and pointed toe was a little too formal for such a casual outfit. These classic black flats seemed like a better choice.

The aqua mini MAC bag I wasn't sure would work with the olive at first, but I ended up really liking this new combination! When you're trying out a new colour combination, including a handbag is a nice way to give it a go without committing to wearing it all day, as you don't always need your bag on your shoulder all the time once you get to your destination.

Blue Wrap Tops And Colourful Skinny Jeans With Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

Sometimes I'll look through my wardrobe for something I want to wear and come across something I haven't worn in a while. These wrap tops haven't been worn recently and were definitely overdue a wear, so I set them aside waiting for an opportunity to wear them. I decided they would look great with my colourful jeans.

The resulting outfit formulas below are exactly the same, with a wrap top, cosy scarf, skinny jeans and Louis Vuitton neverfull bag. But with the different colour schemes I think they look completely different.

What I wore:

blue wrap top, family tree print scarf with green skinny jeans LV neverfull tote | awayfromblue

Louis Vuitton MM Damier azur neverfull tote and green skinny jeans | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | blue and green skinny jeans wrap top neverfull and tree print scarf outfit
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl Family tree scarf in blue and navy (c/o)
TopDorothy Perkins 3/4 sleeve wrap top
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

An early start and a busy morning meant I wanted a simple and fuss free outfit. I always enjoy this wrap top when I wear it as it's so cosy and soft. The only downside to it being chilly in the morning and needing a scarf is that the scarf kind of covers up the wrap detail of the top, ha! You can see it better the last time I wore it here.

When I bought these green jeans I thought they were something to challenge me and make me try different things, as I usually find green tricky to wear. But I've been finding these jeans work with so much! I've been wearing them so frequently lately. I love blue and green together so expect to see me wearing them that way a lot more often! Sticking with simple block colour pieces makes an outfit come together really quickly. It made it a simple choice when picking a scarf to wear too, as I didn't have to worry about the family tree print clashing with the clothing I was wearing. I think the navy tree part of the print matches the shade of blue in the wrap top quite nicely too!

Carried my Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote as I needed a big bag to cart everything around in as hubby and I had a busy day full of appointments and errands.


Last worn: wrap top, family tree scarf, green skinny jeans, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote.

Jeans: thrifted Emerson red skinny jeans

BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

While blue and green is a fairly new colour combination for me, I've always loved red and blue together. I was quite surprised to see that I've never worn this navy wrap top and these red jeans together before! They seem like such an obvious pairing.

The scarf was a last minute addition to my outfit, as the day was off to a cooler than expected start. On this morning there was a dust storm in Brisbane so everything was just a little hazy and the early sunlight was very golden! Last time I wore this poppy print scarf it was with navy and I really liked the combination, so I was happy to wear it with the same colour again. Again, the scarf does cover up the wrap design of the top a bit though!

We had a busy morning with a dentist appointment for the eldest followed by swim lessons. This was an easy and comfortable outfit for all of that. The big Louis Vuitton wasn't really needed as I wasn't carrying all that much, I just thought it went nicely with the rest of my outfit.

Blue Wrap Tops Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

A plain blue wrap top is a really easy piece to wear - you can wear it with prints, or simply with jeans. A colourful pair of skinny jeans is a bold way to colourblock your outfit, and a fun way to wear a colour combination that you already love, or want to try out!

Basic Tees, Prints, Black Jeans and Metallic Flats with Rebecca Minkoff Bags

The one benefit to Brisbane's lovely spring weather suddenly being replaced with a wet and cold spring week is that I got to continue to layer for a little longer. I took the opportunity to try some bolder outfits, with a little print mixing in the first outfit and some bright colours in the second outfit. Despite the very different resulting outfits, the formula was the same with basic tees, black jeans and metallic ballet flats.

What I wore:

print mixing skinny jeans and red tee outfit: skull scarf and stripes | awayfromblue

 Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag on arm | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | plain red tee with black print mixing skull scarf and stripe outfit
Jacket: Kmart striped maxi cardigan
Scarfred and black skull print scarf
TeeJeanswest Emma woven trim tee in terracotta
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs metallic mouse flats
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

I wanted to wear this Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag again, I had worn it over the warmer weekend and really liked it so decided to wear it on this day too. Even though the shades of red with the plain tee, skull scarf and Avery bag are all different, I liked how well they worked together with the black.

This wasn't the outfit I had planned! Hubby and I had another kid-free morning with an appointment and then a lunch date. I'd picked out a dress to wear but the cold and rainy morning made me change my mind and go for a staple skinny jeans outfit. It was a good excuse to give this striped duster a wear too, a bit too cold for winter wear but perfect for spring.

We had a productive morning, but I did regret the striped duster outfit choice when we headed to the bay for lunch - it was really cold and windy, not perfect stroll along the beach weather as we'd hoped. Lunch was good though, and I did really like the print mix of the skull scarf and stripes together. I love pairing my skull print scarves with stripes for a bit of print mixing.

TeeJeanswest Emma woven trim tee in dark green
PantsSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

After being too cold on the windy day above, I picked a cosier topper for this outfit, my black belted cardigan. It's the belt you can see hanging down in the insta photo, in case you were wondering! It was much warmer for a busy but cold day, with daycare for the boys, working from home, and then my son's specialist appointment in the afternoon.

You might recall I mentioned when I bought this tee that it's actually a dark green! It really does look grey in particular lights, and looks so grey here with the black cardigan and printed jeans.

I picked the bright accessories as I remembered this old outfit with the orange scarf, olive tee and aquamarine bag. I thought I could recreate it with this orange crinkle scarf. I really like the aqua and orange combo, and it really pops with the monochromatic outfit. I love how the chevrons on the jeans tie in with the crinkle texture on the scarf - although that wasn't planned, a happy coincidence I noticed when I reviewed the photos!

Basic Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A basic block colour tee is a wardrobe staple and so easy to dress up or down. With a plain tee, you can add interest to your outfits in other ways. It makes print mixing easy as the plain tee goes with any other prints you want to wear. Of course if you aren't a fan of print mixing, you can use a neutral basic tee as the base of an outfit you add colourful accessories too, as I've done with the scarf and bag in the second outfit.

Vloggers Catch Up Video: Striped Tees and Skinny Jeans With Colourful Rebecca Minkoff Bags

Exciting post today, sharing my usual two outfits and my first video collaboration with a brand! I mentioned before I got talking to a brand I love at the bloggers brunch and so I featured them in a video when I went to catch up with some other vlogging mums. Unfortunately, I didn't love my outfits as much as I loved catching up with my YouTube friends, I ended up regretting my outfit choices.

What I wore:

coca cola logo stripe tee skinny jeans black cardi louis vuitton cobalt scarf red avery bag | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag on arm with black | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | vlogger meet up outfit skinny jeans cardigan stripe tee colourful accessories

ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Tee: thrifted navy stripe Coca-Cola logo tee
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
BagRebecca Minkoff red micro Avery cross body bag

Why I wore it:

Wasn't sure what kind of day it would be, so I took the opportunity to wear all the layers! The boys and I headed to New Farm park for an Australian Vlogging Mums catch-up. We were going to be sitting by the water and it was a cold morning so cosy pieces seemed like a great idea. By the time we reached the park it was much warmer. I left the scarf in the car, and the cardigan came off and on through the morning, spending most of the time just in jeans and a tee.

I thought this little red Rebecca Minkoff Avery bag was a cute touch with the red logo on the tee, and it also fits nicely inside the baby bag to help reduce the number of bags I had to carry on the way back to the car.

I did regret wearing the glitter shoes. They were comfortable and I thought they'd be fun, but they did get a little dirty. Not as dirty as the new shoes I put on the boys before they got up to their mischief though! You can see what I mean in the video. Bad shoe choices for the whole family there!

Why I wore it:

This day was not as fun as the one above! Similar outfit formula though, again with a striped tee, skinny jeans and those fun glittery shoes. I added the purple cardigan and blue scarf for some extra colour with all of the neutrals. Like the first outfit, I added a cute and colourful Rebecca Minkoff bag. This time my plum mini MAB tote.

The plan was for a relaxing Saturday with a swim lessons and grocery shopping, but plans quickly changed when the little one was unwell. Took him to the doctors where I again regretted my outfit choice.

Sick kids are messy, and I was wearing a white tee...which wasn't quite as white by the time the doctor called us through!

It was a nice outfit, just a bad day! Thankfully the doctor could give us some medicine to help.

Striped Tees Under $50:



How You Can Wear It:

Striped tees are a wardrobe staple! Paired with neutral skinny jeans, it's easy classic mum style. For extra interest and warmth you can add a colourful scarf as well as a fun bright handbag. Having a neutral outfit makes adding colourful pieces on top simpler as you don't have to worry about colours clashing.
